Greetings to everyone-
I have so enjoyed reading all of the wonderful posts on all of the topics. I just had to sign on and say thank you, thank you, thank you for your years of experience, honesty and kindness that is shared so freely.
I have learned tons and I have a new hobby now! :D

A little bit about myself- I live in Tucson AZ, lifelong tea drinker, mom, teacher, avid reader and doggy mommy of two boston terriers.
New interests- gung fu, matcha and the ceremony surrounding great tea. I am ordering many samples from adagio to get a start on trying many loose leaf teas. I confess I have been a Twinnings Earl Grey person since age 10.

I am looking forward to trying many of the recommendations I have seen on this forum- and please feel free to make suggestions.

Happy Tea Day!

Suggestion one...stay away from the Oolongonians...they are :evil:

Suggestion two...you can probably figure out to stay away from pu-heads on your own.

Suggestion three...Can't say anything bad about the black tea drinkers here, except they don't have a nick name yet.

Suggestion four...hang out with the green tea collective, we would love to assimilate you! :twisted:

Rainy...don't look into Victoria's cup, whatever you do. It is full of subliminal Oolongonian messages. :lol:

Thank you- I feel very welcomed.

Rainy, don't join their baseball team! Join our baseball team!

Heh. Sometimes TeaChat is a little combative ... in an utterly friendly, hurling-of-used-tealeaves kind of way, of course. (And even then, hurling takes place only after multiple steepings.)

Anyway, welcome, and it's a pleasure to have you - regardless of which team you're attracted to, be it Oolongians or Shinchanians :wink:

P.S. Japanese greens rule.
